    I might be movin' to Montana soon
    Just to raise me up a crop of
    Dental Floss

    Raisin' it up
    Waxen it down
    In a little white box
    That I can sell uptown

    By myself I wouldn't
    Have no boss,
    But I'd be raisin' my lonely
    Dental Floss

    Raisin' my lonely
    Dental Floss

    Well I just might grow me some bees
    But I'd leave the sweet stuff
    To somebody else . . . but then, on the other hand I would

    Keep the wax
    'N melt it down
    Pluck some Floss
    'N swish it aroun'

    I'd have me a crop
    An' it'd be on top (that's why I'm movin' to Montana)

    Movin' to Montana soon
    Gonna be a Dental Floss tycoon (yes I am)
    Movin' to Montana soon
    Gonna be a mennil-toss flykune

    I'm pluckin' the ol'
    Dennil Floss
    That's growin' on the prairie
    Pluckin' the floss!
    I plucked all day an' all nite an' all
    Afternoon . . .

    I'm ridin' a small tiny hoss
    (His name is MIGHTY LITTLE)
    He's a good hoss
    Even though
    He's a bit dinky to strap a big saddle or
    Blanket on anyway
    He's a bit dinky to strap a big saddle or
    Blanket on anyway
    Any way

    I'm pluckin' the ol'
    Dennil Floss
    Even if you think it is a little silly, folks
    I don't care if you think it's silly, folks
    I don't care if you think it's silly, folks

    I'm gonna find me a horse
    Just about this big,
    An' ride him all along the border line

    With a
    Pair of heavy-duty
    Zircon-encrusted tweezers in my hand
    Every other wrangler would say
    I was mighty grand

    By myself I wouldn't
    Have no boss,
    But I'd be raisin' my lonely
    Dental Floss

    Raisin' my lonely
    Dental Floss
    Raisin' my lonely
    Dental Floss

    Well I might
    Ride along the border
    With my tweezers gleamin'
    In the moon-lighty night

    And then I'd
    Get a cuppa cawfee
    'N give my foot a push . . .
    Just me 'n the pygmy pony
    Over by the Dennil Floss Bush

    'N then I might just
    Jump back on
    An' ride
    Like a cowboy
    Into the dawn to Montana

    Movin' to Montana soon
    (Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)

    Ok, here's another one. Can someone please explain this to me? The website on the bike is no longer active. A little google-fu isn't helping.

    Can't imagine why this didn't succeed.

    I'm sure the offset cranks had nothing to do with it. My guess is because it didn't come in pretty colors.

    I for the life of many cannot think of any advantage with that design and I'm really curious as to how they marketed it. Besides the offset cranks, looks like it would be real fun when someone sets the chains on where the cranks are not 180 degrees from each other, like in the photo.

    Is that a double SS?

    Twin Drive SS?

    Offset Dual Drive SS?

    The only thing I can can think of is that the rear hub is a flip flop single speed design with the freewheel direction reversed or there are simply two freewheels, both leading me to believe that the cranks are independent of one another. Again, not sure what benefit it would serve!

    So as I remember (barely) the idea was that the cranks only moved up and down about 120 degrees. As the right was moving down the left was pushing up (more like stair climbing than cycling). It was another attempt at solving an "Imagined" problem.

    I know what your talking about. I'm pretty sure it was this. https://www.sheldonbrown.com/brandt/alenax.html Hysterical, but functionally terrible.

    ^ Ah, that's why the cranks aren't at 180 degrees. I can't figure what brings the pedals up though.

    I've occasionally seen a guy on the sidewalk in the mornings with a newer version of that, but on his you have to stand up, which probably makes more sense and it does look like a stairclimber.

    Thanks!

    Everyone know that's an Offset Dual Bi-single flip flop offspeed crank with an optional trunion carrier bearing. Or something, I think.

    Geometry looks spot on, a bit more modern than DJ's rig.

    That is a straight up murder weapon. Do not get your fingerprints on that.. I love the selling point.

    I don't even know where to start. It's a DH bike, supposedly, with a Massive comfort saddle. It's super weird, and hilarious to see in person.
